There is some good here too. Morning Dew is a highlight of this unrewarding show, being emotional if not terribly well played. But Drums and Space are the only place in this show where the band really takes off and gets creative. Drums is especially trippy and interesting. I'd love to take the drums and space sections from the last four years of the band and make a compilation/mix. Mick and Bill and the gang would let it all hang out during these excursions into uncharted waters.

#2 - Ive probably heard Morning Dew live probably 50 times or better.
Maybe ok or listenable you said - for a man who would be dead in less than 4 months this was a GREAT Morning Dew.
The Morning Dew on the Cow Palace release was incredible as well as numerous ones done the early 60s - 70s - 80s and evewn 90s. A great song by a great musician in his prime should be done well.
A great song by a man who was that close to death delivered the way Jerry did on that day is fucken incredible.
So that being said i stand by my previous review. Little side note here Bobby and Ratdog did a spectacular Dew in camden NJ in either 2007 or 2008. I forget which year but I was there and boy Bobby blew that doors off that joint with that one.
Further 3 nights in Feburary - NICE !!! Caught them 3 times in December GOOD STUFF.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's listenable, which is more than can be said for almost all of 95, but only sorta good. Maybe OK. Maybe you never heard a Dew before?
How bout 2/24/74 or for later years 9/18/87. Those are real Dews.

Smoked everything within 100 ft. of me on the floor during show and watched the masses writhing in the bleachers.
Wandered outer stretches of lot afterwards and saw the band tear by us in black stretch SUV's w/ police escort....tried to convince my buddy that Jer warranted secret service protection. Vegas '95!

Subject: crazy vibe
Jerry would be gone. I think when you put it all together, Jerrys' health, problems within the band.
Despite it all I LOVE this show. Can't really explain the crazy vibe comment, D/L it and see what you think!!

Subject: It is under-rated
I remember an awesone Dew, but everything else kinda escapes me. In listening to it today, I am surprised I don't have better memories because the performance is quite good, probably the best of the Vegas run.
There is on stage banter, only a few flubbed lyrics (hardly noticed) and some fine playing by all, including Jerry.
